What is phpMyAdmin? What is its purpose? Why will your Internet sites require it?
phpMyAdmin is a powerful PHP-based software tool used to handle MySQL databases through a web interface. You can use it to run MySQL commands, set up, modify and remove cells, rows and tables or manage users with different levels of access to the database in question. Each one of these tasks could be carried out from any device as long as you have a web browser and access to the website hosting account in which the database is. With phpMyAdmin, you may also export or import an entire database, which is a very beneficial feature if you need to migrate a website from one hosting provider to another. A variety of file formats are supported for the so-called dump file - CSV, SQL, XML and PDF, based on what you need to do - move the data from one hosting account to another, preview an entire database in a spreadsheet application like Microsoft Excel, and so forth.
phpMyAdmin in Website Hosting
We provide phpMyAdmin with all Linux website hosting
and you shall be able to access it via the MySQL Databases section of your Hepsia CP. In case you are signed into your website hosting account, you can click on the phpMyAdmin icon, that'll be on the right-hand side of every database you've created, and you shall be logged in automatically. However, you could also access a database directly by visiting our phpMyAdmin login page and inputting the corresponding username and password. You will have the exact same level of access either way and you'll be able to carry out all operations which the tool supports, to enable you to conveniently import, export or modify any of your databases. The direct link may be very useful when a third person, like a web designer, requires access to a given database and you don't want to give them full access to the hosting account.
phpMyAdmin in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server
plan through our company, you'll be able to access phpMyAdmin to manage any MySQL database you create in your account through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. A new tab will open inside your Internet browser the moment you click on the phpMyAdmin icon for a particular database and you will be logged into the sophisticated tool automatically, so you will not have to type in the database username or password. If you would like to provide access to another person like a web developer, for instance, you can give them the database login credentials and they'll be able to log in using a direct link to phpMyAdmin, so they will never need access to your whole hosting account. This option will allow you to keep your files and emails safe at all times.
